The beautiful capital city of Spain, Madrid radiates an easygoing continental atmosphere and a sophistication all its own. Madrid was founded in the 9th century by a Moorish noble, though the city was soon captured by Christian settlers. Rising to become an important city for the emerging Spanish royalty, Madrid survived invasions by Napoleon, the Spanish Civil War and Franco’s reign. Today, Madrid’s priceless art collections, splendid architecture and laid-back lifestyle attracts visitors worldwide, year after year.
